The Hakko CHP Wire Strippers are perfect for stripping 7 different wire gauges ranging from 26 to 16.
Hakko CHP tools have handles that are made with a nifty powder-impregnated rubber that makes for a comfortable 'non-stick' grip, without feeling slippery or oily. A good pair of wire strippers is essential for anyone working with electronics or electrical devices (like cars, or robots).
One last thought on the tools you use
Tools are one of those things you should never cut corners (or wires) on. Get the best you can afford. A poor tool will end up costing you more in time and quality of your workmanship. We use the the tools and supplies we sell, and like you, we want good value from our tools but at a reasonable price. These units definitely worthwhile!
